Elevator pitch

Most people in medicine teach or lecture, yet presentation skills have traditionally seen little focus during training. This is probably your best chance to hone those skills this neck of the woods in a long while. No more death by powerpoint! We’re thrilled to have none other than presentation master Ross Fisher at the helm for a full day of interactive sessions. We’re also happy to announce that professional actor Ulrik Nykjær Jeppesen will lead a workshop on delivery focusing on voice, posture and presence. Lots of interactivity and feedback guaranteed.

Faculty

Ross Fisher is at the sine qua non of this whole day masterclass. He has developed and refined the concept of p cubed for presentations (story x supporting media x presentation) and has talked at TEDx and SMACC so not only does he talk the talk, he’s walked the walk as well so to speak. Ross is very passionate about improving medical presentation and in addition to continued online efforts at his website he’s done numerous workshops getting into the nitty gritty with learners of the craft. You’re in for a treat. Read more about him and the rest of the faculty and team making this course possible.

About scanFOAM

Scandinavian #FOAMed

scanFOAM.org is an initiative to further medical education in Scandinavia and beyond with a specific goal of promoting open access content from our region. We believe delivery of select educational content should be digitized and made available to the larger community to the benefit of providers and ultimately our patients. This is part of the global #FOAMed movement that is a mash up of content and conversation carried forward by an altruistic ethos. Delivery of content online is somewhat different and has other demands than speaking offline and our project hopes to improve on these aspects as we go along. A course on presentation skills is a logical step for us to support for both offline and online delivery. See the scanFOAM site for more content, connect on social media and join the conversation!
